Here's a card by Heidi Bishop designed while she was a member of the Custom Quilling Design Team. She used a technique called husking, spreuer or wheatear, which just means wrapping strips around an onion holder!

4 ¼” x 5 ½” yellow cardstock for the card
Yellow cream decorative paper

A printed “Happy St Patrick’s Day
Spring green two tone quilling strips
White pearl paper
5 yellow crystals
Small flower punch
Onion holder

Make 3 dark green leaves: Make a seven looped leave around prongs 6, 5, 4, 3 using alternate side looping technique.
Make a dark green 3 looped stem around prongs 4 and 3 using alternate side looping technique.
Repeat for light green shamrock
Make 3, 4 looped leaves around prongs 2, 3, 4, and 5 using the wheatear technique.
Make 1, 3” trumpet coil for the stem
Punch and shape 5 white flowers and add crystals.
Attach text to decorative paper then to card stock.
Using picture as a guide, glue into place elements.

Hope you enjoy Heidi's card!
